Bags In The Wild

The Best Bags in the Wild We Spotted in NYC So Far This May

Totes galore...and more!

As spring drags on, teasing the start of summer, New Yorkers have finally become accustomed to at least a few sunny days each week. The nice weather has been a tease at times, with showers and clouds in the mix more than we’d like to see just a week out from MDW! Nonetheless, the nice days mean New Yorkers take full advantage, which for us means that sun = great bag watching!

We sent Vladi out earlier this month to see what the streets had in store for us, and this batch of bags did not disappoint! Trusty totes were the shape of choice this go-round, with fan favorites like the Louis Vuitton Neverfull, Chanel Deauville, Dior Book Tote, and more popping up.

For those who haven’t pulled their summer bags out of storage yet, let the Hermès Linen Birkin inspire you! Plus, an appearance by yours truly makes it into the mix—more below!

Tons of Totes, Rare Hermès and More!

I’m still amazed that women carry their bags wide open on the NY streets.

Come! Join us! Carry two bags, if you dare. To be fair, this is all daytime in Manhattan in very safe UES/midtown east locations.

But seriously, join us. I’ll meet you with my Mark Cross Grace bag and Bottega Jodie.

Only when it’s empty because they’re models and it’s a photo shoot. 😉

This wasn’t a photoshoot in any way! This is just people passing on the street 🙂

I don’t know why but I LOVE to see the LV x Jeff Koons bags in the wild. They were met with so much vitriol when they were released that now they have their own kind of mythical status.

Same. Years ago, I was in a LV store in Paris with my bestie who pays no attention to bags and cannot afford them. She fell in love with the Monet. I was one of the people who hated the bags but I said nothing negative and told her that if she loved it, I’d help her buy it. Bestie’s first and only designer bag is a Monet LV. She loves it. Over the years that bag has grown on me. I have never seen one of the LV X Koons bags in the wild other than hers. Seeing this one was cool.

Does it slip off your shoulder? Is it roomy?

I wish I could feel so carefree to carry my bag opened & over my shoulder. However, since I was robbed in Times Square it makes me always carry crossbody’s with my hand firmly on top of them.

I’m living only for the day I show up here with my YSL oversized tote.
